A Clean Home is a Happy Home

Having a clean home is something that is very important to me. I always feel so much more relaxed when everything is in its place, and the counters and floors.  When there is a mess in my home, I feel super stressed out, and it’s the only thing I can focus on.

It’s especially important for me to keep my home extra clean now that Kayleigh is walking around.  If there is anything laying around anywhere, she will find it and try to put it in her mouth. 

When Kayleigh started eating solid foods a few months ago, I just about lost my mind. Every single meal time was followed up with me having to sweep and mop my kitchen floor.  Now, she has also added walking around with snacks in hand to that mess.  I find her trail of crumbs everywhere.  In addition to a very busy toddler, I also have two indoor cats who shed like crazy.

I’m a busy Mom, and I just don’t have time to dig out my bucket and mop after every meal time or snack.  I was so happy when Swiffer sent me one of their awesome Big Green Boxes (#BigGreenBox) to help simplify my cleaning routine. 

Swiffer Big Green Box

I’m sure you’ve all seen the commercials where they surprise someone by leaving a Big Green Box at their front door.  Well, upon opening my box, I was filled with excitement, just like those people in the commercials.  Inside was a Swiffer Sweeper, with both wet and dry pads, and also a Swiffer Dusters kit with refills.  I couldn’t wait to put these to use in my home!

The Swiffer Sweeper is so easy to use.  I love that it’s small enough that I can easily sweep under my lower kitchen cabinets, which are kind of hard to get to with a regular broom.  I love that it’s also really easy to change out the dry pad for the wet one and wash my floor too.  No more filling up buckets with water to mop the floor!  Cleaning up after Kayleigh and my cats has never been so easy.  Now, instead of spending lots of time sweeping and washing my floors, I can spend more time with her.

I am also thoroughly enjoying the Swiffer Dusters kit.  The duster works so great, and I especially love using it on my ceiling fans, which are hard to reach but need to be cleaned often.  The duster uses thousands of fluffy fibers that change shape to fit anywhere to trap and lock dust without spreading it around the home.  That means I can easily dust the ceiling fans, and not worry about the dust falling all over my floors in the process.

Spreading the Joy

In addition to sending me one of their fabulous Big Green Boxes, Swiffer also sent me a second box to surprise someone else with.  I chose to give this box to my Mom.  My youngest sister and her 1 year old daughter are currently living with my parents, so they have to deal with the same meal and snack-time messes, PLUS, they have 3 cats and a big golden retriever dog!  Now, that’s a lot of mess to clean up after!  They also have hardwood floor and tile throughout their whole house, so I know this will really come in handy for them. 

My Mom was overjoyed to receive this package, and she was certainly surprised!

Over the next couple of days, my Mom sent me several text messages, letting me know that she was putting the Swiffer goodies to use and having fun cleaning her home.  That’s the power of the #SwifferEffect!
